[This just in from Jamie from the Kickin’ Cajuns!]
Hey PreSonus! Last year I purchased a Presonus StudioLive 24.4.2 board from a local dealer, and have nothing but great things to say. I’ve had a Midas board for seven years prior, and one night at a club gig a fight broke out, and the subsequently spilled drinks ended its poor li’l life beyond a worthy repair.
As the front man, I’m none too savvy on the technical aspects of the equipment, so I got some advice from my engineers and some other local sound companies. So we started looking and ended up going with the StudioLive. We used a 24.4.2 for front house initially, then added a 16.4.2 for in-ears. It’s not only a high-quality piece, but very affordable. I paid three times the amount for my other board, and this thing runs circles around it and the sound quality is unbelievable!
Well, all aside from the great sound we were getting as a band, we recently found ourselves overdue for a new CD. I had always talked about a Live album because I think our live show is killer; and have often heard that confirmed by our audiences! I started checking out prices pricing for someone to record the album. Days later my engineer said, “Jamie, we can record ourselves live with the PreSonus”. I was like, “well let’s get with it!”
Long story short, we recorded us where we thought we were getting the best sound quality as far as venue, crowd and band performance were concerned—and with a few tweaks here and there, Jamie Bergeron and the Kickin’ Cajuns “Live Like Dat” CD was born.
I’ve gotten numerous compliments in all aspects of this CD, which is our number six. Since then, I have seen some local competing bands switching to… guess who?
